A day in the life of a parks and recreation supervisor

This is an excerpt from Leisure Services Management, Second Edition by Amy R. Hurd, Robert J. Barcelona, Jo An M. Zimmermann, and Janet Ready.

Alexis MorenoNo day in parks and recreation is ever ordinary. I usually start my day by checking emails from home—­this gives me an idea of where my day might be headed. On any given day, I am working on such ­things as preparing the sailing camp for inclement weather approaching in the after­noon, providing recreation programming through local partnerships and community organ­izations, supervising the Youth Ser­vice Initiative program, and reviewing survey feedback from parents about our new partnership with the local school district’s summer school program. In order to be a successful instructor, coordinator, or supervisor within the field of parks and recreation, you must be adaptable, flexible, have ­great communication skills, and the ability to problem-­solve within any setting. From weather concerns to engagements with parents or public officials, you never know what’s ­going to come up!
